Angelina Jolie Net Worth: $160 Million

Like many celebrities, Jolie has earned a hefty sum of cash from endorsement deals, including a $12 million contract with the clothing brand St. John and a $10 million deal with Louis Vuitton she landed in 2011. However, Jolie’s $160 million net worth is primarily owed to her work in the film industry.

Despite her impressive wealth, Jolie reportedly described herself as being “quite responsible about money” in a 2014 CNBC interview. Moreover, she is known for making modest financial decisions, such as flying coach with her family in 2015 and driving a Lexus sedan in 2013.

Still, when Jolie and her ex-husband Brad Pitt were together, they showed a willingness to splurge on their hobbies and interests. Along with purchasing a Cirrus SR22 jet worth an estimated $334,700, the couple shelled out for Virgin Galactic tickets to outer space, which have a base price of $200,000.

Jolie consistently appears on Forbes’ list of the world’s highest-paid actresses. In 2015, she earned $15 million, which placed her at No. 7 on the list.

Angelina Jolie Movies

Jolie commands hefty sums for her acting skills. While top actors and actresses generally earn between $15 million and $20 million per movie, according to Time, Jolie received $33 million to star in Disney’s “Maleficent,” although she hadn’t been on-screen for almost four years prior.

Her earning power is due in part to an ability to pull off diverse roles, ranging from her Oscar-winning portrayal of a psychiatric patient in “Girl, Interrupted” to her role as an action star in “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.” Jolie is also highly paid because of her success in drawing foreign viewers to theaters.

In its opening weekend, “Maleficent” earned nearly $70 million in North America and grossed more than $758 million total worldwide. Her thriller “The Tourist” with co-star Johnny Depp made $278 million worldwide, even though it wasn’t a big hit in the U.S. Movies Jolie has acted in have netted $5.99 billion globally, according to Box Office Mojo.

More recently, Jolie provided the voice for Tigress in “Kung Fu Panda 3,” which was released in January 2016 and grossed just over $41 million domestically in its opening weekend. Additionally, the star has been spending time on the other side of the camera.

Jolie wrote, directed and starred in “By the Sea” opposite Brad Pitt. She also directed the World War II drama “Unbroken,” which brought in just over $30 million its opening weekend, making it the fourth-best Christmas Day opening of all-time. Although Jolie’s last movie was in 2016, she is currently filming “Maleficent 2” and “The One and Only Ivan.”

Angelina Jolie’s Personal Life

While Angelina Jolie’s life might appear polished, the actress has had her share of trials. Jolie suffered a period of depression during which she cut herself, according to CBS News. She also has endured three failed marriages, including her 2016 split from Brad Pitt, with whom she has six children.

Additionally, Jolie has experienced some serious health issues in recent years. After discovering she has a gene that increases her risk of developing cancer, she opted to have a preventative mastectomy in 2013. She later had her ovaries and fallopian tubes removed.

Despite her personal struggles, Jolie has gone to great lengths to help others. A well-known humanitarian, Jolie serves as a Special Envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. In addition to donating more than $5 million to the agency, she wrote a book based on her early experiences with refugees, the proceeds of which go to the UNHCR.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s Children

The development of the Jolie-Pitt brood is quite the story. Jolie adopted her son Maddox from Cambodia in 2002. Three years later, she expanded the family with the adoption of Zahara Marley.

In 2006, the couple had their first biological daughter, Shiloh Nouvel, who prefers to be called John, according to The Telegraph. Jolie adopted Pax Thien in 2007 before she gave birth to twins Knox Leon and Vivienne Marcheline a year later.

Jolie made headlines when she brought her kids to the premiere of “Kung Fu Panda 3.” According to Jolie, millionaire moms like herself should not complain about juggling work and family because they have more access, support and leeway than the average woman. “I’m in a rare position where I don’t have to do job after job,” she told The Daily News in May 2014. “I can take time when my family needs it.”

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Divorce

In September 2016, Angelina Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt, citing irreconcilable differences. Though they’d only been married for two years, the couple — dubbed “Brangelina” — got together on the set of “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” in 2005.

The couple’s divorce has not been finalized, but it will likely be one of the most expensive celebrity separations. Although no settlement has been reached, Jolie and Pitt are trying to conceal the details of their divorce such as negotiations over the custody of their six children and the distribution of the couple’s assets, according to People. Forbes estimated that the couple has earned about $117.5 million since their 2014 marriage.
